Things I've Learned from Watching the Browns
by Terry Pluto




Overview -

"For dedicated Browns fans the book is] like leafing through an old family photo album." -- BlogCritics.com

Here's a question for any Browns fan: Why?

Why, more than four long decades after your team's last championship ... despite a relentless pattern of heartbreak, teasing, and more heartbreak ... capped with a decade of utter futility ... do you still stick with the Cleveland Browns?

Veteran sportswriter Terry Pluto gets a daily barrage of email from fans letting their hearts bleed out orange and brown. So he decided to ask his readers: Just what is it about this team that makes you love them, hate them, and still keep coming back for more?

A thousand fans responded--in detail. Their stories--along with interviews with former players and Pluto's own expert analysis--deliver the answer. Answers, actually. Because like any intense relationship, it's a little complicated ...

Covering the Browns from 1964 through present day, this book does for Cleveland football what Pluto's classic about the Indians, The Curse of Rocky Colavito, did for Cleveland baseball: It won't make the pain go away, but it might help you remember why it's worth enduring.
